I SEND YOU THIS PLACE is the debut feature-length documentary from filmmakers Andrea Sisson and Pete Ohs. The film was produced with the support of the U.S. Fulbright Foundation and premiered at the 2012 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
The documentary blends fiction and non-fiction to tell the story of a young woman whose encounter with the intense natural beauty of Iceland inspires her to examine her comfortable notions of sanity and creativity. The island's intensity reminds Andrea of her schizophrenic brother Jacob, a young man who isn’t bound by the conventional standards. “Delusional” thought and “erratic” behavior seem not so different from Andrea’s untamed surroundings in which the wind rants, the clouds are grandiose and the seasons bi-polar.
"I SEND YOU THIS PLACE is a surreal, genre-bending work of cinematic poetry and a penetrating study of human consciousness in all its wild ferocity."
by Lauren Edward
